    i now have the right dates for all this loan application business

    the LEAs (in england and scotland) are aiming to have forms out to all schools by 2nd april

    and then you have to send them back in by 2nd july

    we had ours last week, and my god, they're gonna take more than 2 months to fill in - they're so confusing!!!!!

    and i have a question - we had this man from the LEA talking to us last week and when it came to tuition fees, the university of buckingham had fees of like £2705 instead of the normal £1150. so...why?!?!

    AFAIK because Buckingham is a private University, so receives less (no?) Government funding. Hence the reliance on overseas students.

    At least we only get one form, I heard it used to be 2.
